Breastfeeding support groups in Children’s Centres and other community venues

Breastfeeding support groups welcome all expectant mums and any mum who is breastfeeding or giving any amount of breastmilk to her baby. All the support groups are friendly and welcoming and run by local peer supporters in conjunction with North Somerset Children’s Centres. 

Peer support is available from mums who have had experience of breastfeeding and who have had training to provide mother to mother support for breastfeeding. If you are interested in training as a volunteer breastfeeding peer supporter and supporting local women on their breastfeeding journey please contact us for further information on and look at our information page on Breastfeeding Peer Supporter Training 

All groups are very welcoming to new mums, you don’t have to have a problem to attend. Groups can be great for moral support, company from like-minded mums and to get information. Partners or other supporters are welcome to come with you. Older children are also welcome, with toys and books available to keep them entertained.
